I love OEC! I have been attending there since I was in the 1st grade and I am now in 7th! The teachers are awesome! The students are friendly. And we really like one big happy family!

OEC is a good small community that is nurturing to our children. They are firm with the children but, rewarding to good behavior. The children grow together like family, and many of the children go to the best schools in the city. The MG program is stellar! Both of my children have had success there.
